I grew up in Tarrant where I stayed until I married my wife Lois Beasley-Carliisle in 1991. I had offices in Birmingham at wo different locations, then shared attorney space wih attorney Sam Burke Wear for a couple years in Fultondale, Alabama. After my wife left the law firm of Veigas and Cox, we teamed up in 1993, bought a building in Tarrant that our offices are currently located in. I was greatly involved in little league sports until the kinds grew up. I enjoy hunting, and working with my hands (manual labor). I am a skilled carpenter, can professionally do jobs in roofing, remoldling residential homes, ceramic tile work, and general maintenance and repair of residential homes. I have past experience in new home building and wish the economy would take a turn for the better as I do have a desire, the knowledge and ability to bring up a new home from the foundation up. I will hopefully be taking my state new home building test to become licensed if this economy will turn for the better. I am of course an football fan of the University of Alabama. Where the law school sits now was where I lived in the married couples apartments from 1966-1969 when my father went to the University of Alabama. I have two sisters Donna Carlisle Moreno and Linda Carlisle Nelson. My wife and I have three children together and I have helped her raise three children that she had prior to our marrying. When I say helped it was a team effort between my wife and I, the step-children's father Russell Beasley and their step mother Brenda Beasley (who are fine people). My step children's names are Rachel Beasley Word, Ryan Beasley and Stephanie Beasley. I am a cause oriented person meaning that monehy isnt the issue that makes me work harder but principal, right and wrong have a far greater impact on me than anything else. My partner and wife is of course the more business oriented attorney of a partnership and can by far work circles around me. I am affected by the emotions of my clients and have to ofen remove myself when their grief or emotion becomes too strong. I prefer text messaging as a communication because there is less of an emotional impact on me which of course over a period of time can become draining to me because of the way that I am built as a person. I like to know my clients on a more personal basis than most attorneys (in my opinion), and I want my clients to feel very comfortable witrh me. I am a servant to my fellow man which carries over in to my profession. I strongly desire to be liked and accepted by everyone and it bothers me to find that someone has issues with me or doesnt like me. I am one that will stop and smell the roses, so to speak and do not like to so schedule my life that I miss the little things. This personality that I have has enabled me to know people in greater detail and has made my practice in the domestic area easier. We are all brothers and sisters in this life we live and I hope that you find me to be one of the least judgmental persons that you have come accross. I always stive to be a better husband, son, broher, lawyer, friend and father in my life. I know I fall well short of being the best in these areas but I try every day to become better at being the man person I should be in all of these aspects.
